Many people wonder why it is necessary to purchase a home water ionizer when so many brands of bottled water are available, some of which claim to be alkaline. The first thing to consider is that electrically ionized water has the highest levels of antioxidant activity – negative ORP – when it is first produced. Any time you make alkaline, ionized water and bottle it, transport it, and sell it on the shelf, it will not be nearly as potent.
The cost factor is the next thing to consider. How much would you spend on bottled water over a period of 10 years if you drank the amount recommended? The answer depends on the kind of water you purchase, but a liter of specialty bottled water is rarely less than $1.99, and 2-3 liters a day is a common intake. That adds up! $120 to $180/month … you can finance an AlkaViva water ionizer for that.
Finally, there’s the damage bottled water does to the environment. Plastic bottles guzzle resources … it takes 5 liters of water to make just one plastic bottle and the cost in oil is tremendous … 30 million barrels of oil is required to make the plastic bottles for one year of US bottled water consumption. Not to mention the unhealthy petro chemicals that can leach into the water from the bottle, and the fact that most bottled water is simply … tap water.
Don’t forget the physical changes that occur in the water with ionization! The following alterations can support better hydration and wellness:
AlkaViva’s UltraWater filtration technology is superior to any filtration process available today. The results are documented by EPA-certified lab testing – and UltraWater technology reduces hard-to-remove chemicals and toxins up to 99.9% while leaving the beneficial alkaline minerals intact. No other water ionizer offers this level of certainty that you are drinking the cleanest and healthiest water possible.
Alkalinity and pH
When water is ionized, it also concentrates the essential alkaline minerals like magnesium, calcium and potassium that occur naturally in water. These minerals are transformed from bonded particles into charged ionic forms that are more bio-available. Ionized water also contains an abundance of the OH- or hydroxyl ions, the same ions the body uses to help stabilize and alkalize the pH of the blood, fluids and most tissues. These ions are essential in maintaining optimal health.
Alkalized, ionized water delivers about twice as much oxygen as does typical tap or bottled water. Think of the jogger vs. the couch potato – proper hydration brings to your cells a flood of fresh oxygen.
Normal tap water, for example, with a pH around 7 is approximately neutral on the pH scale of 0 to 14. When measured with an ORP (oxidation potential) meter its redox potential is approximately +400 to +500 mV. Because it has a positive redox potential, it is apt to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules. Reduced ionized water, on the other hand, has a negative redox potential of approximately -250 to -550 mV (or less). This means it has a large mass of electrons ready to donate to electron-thieving, active oxygen.
The process of electrolysis changes the surface tension and structure of water. Using a method called NMR spectroscopy, scientist have shown a significant reduction in the size of water molecular clusters, from 15-20 down to 5 or 6 water molecules per cluster. It becomes “wetter water” which can more easily penetrate cell membranes, offering a stream of hydration and renewal. The turnover of “fresh water in and waste out” helps our cells to work at peak performance. Foggy thinking, joint pains, constipation and digestive issues often resolve with proper hydration. Proper hydration takes your body from a stagnant “polluted lake” to one that is sparkling and “fed by glacial streams”.
The negative hydrogen ion (H-) is a powerful antioxidant found naturally in raw foods and ancient water sources like glacier streams, deep wells or aquifers, springs and lakes. The H- ion is the original antioxidant that allowed life to form and sustain itself. A water ionizer creates alterations to water that result in an abundance of H- ions.
Ionized water carries a large mass of free electrons that can (as you change from dehydrated to hydrated) help neutralize free radicals in the body and block the oxidation of normal cells. It’s like drinking glass after glass of anti-oxidants that cling to and help neutralize the damaging, oxidizing, free-radicals within your body.
So given all the benefits, why NOT buy an ionizer? With affordable financing, the monthly cost can be less than buying bottled water for one person – definitely a money-saver for a family. The only question left is which brand to buy. AlkaViva ionizers are affordably priced, come with UltraWater Inside, and are the performance leaders among all major brands. With models for every budget, AlkaViva is the only real choice!
